• Mathletics Celebrates Math: The Only Subject that COUNTS!

    The 50th Annual Monterey County Mathletics Competition welcomed over 400 students to Hartnell College on Saturday, April 28, 2018 for a day dedicated to the only subject that counts – Math!

    Held each Spring, Mathletics is sponsored by Monterey County Office of Education and California State University, Monterey Bay Mathematics Department. Photos from the event can be found here.

    The 50th Annual Mathletics event began with the competition, held from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m., where students took exams in Integrated Math, Pre-Calculus, Calculus, and Statistics.
